Abstract

An 81-year-old woman with a history of patulous Eustachian tube (ET) dysfunction refractory to medical management, tympanostomy tube placements, and filler injections underwent transoral shim insertion into the left ET for chronic ear pressure with voice and breath autophony. The patient's autophony resolved. Persistent symptoms of ear, eye, and head fullness prompted flat-panel computed tomography (CT) imaging that showed the radiopaque shim in the appropriate position within the ET.
